One of the easiest ways to illustrate the value of preventive medicine is to look at a baby aspirin. An adult male can take one baby aspirin daily – at a cost of about two cents – to help protect against and prevent a heart attack, or risk an actual heart attack, hospitalization and treatment costing tens of thousands of dollars. Preventive healthcare costs far less, both in monetary terms and human suffering terms.

I’ve always had a wonderful experience working with Dr Johnson and all of his staff. He’s been my primary care physician for 6+ years now, and I’ve continued to have a great experience with the PAs since he’s changed his practice structure. I’m staying forever. Thanks Dr. Johnson and team. – RC
He is respectful and empathetic and, at the same time, will not shy from telling you the hard news. He isn’t afraid to try new things, but he also doesn’t just load you up with fancy new medicines and send you out the door. If you go to Dr. J and have a complicated health issue, he will give you a REAL treatment plan; we’re talking nutrition counseling, genetic testing, environmental sensitivity testing, holistic supplements, etc. – ZC
Dr.Johnson is AWESOME; he really has a way about him that was welcoming for a new patient. He spoke of the “why” behind his approach and made sure I was educated for each item we reviewed. I look forward to being a long time patient and encourage others to do the research you just may discover he fits your needs. – MP
